(CNN) — A Belgian aid worker who was imprisoned in Iran for more than a year is “currently on his way to Belgium,” the country’s prime minister said Friday, after Oman said the two countries had reached a deal to swap prisoners.

“The Omani efforts have resulted in an agreement between the two sides for a mutual exchange deal,” Oman’s foreign ministry said in a statement.
